of course their goal is to get re-elected, what else would their goal be?

Isn't your goal to keep your job every day?

The problem is how they are going about trying to fulfill their goal of being re-elected, they should be out representing the masses and doing what the people who voted for them would like, rather then going out and talking about what they will do.

These are the best two choices to bring our country back to some sort of sanity...but unfortunately the masses are not ready for sanity.

Donald Trump - "if economy gets worse (which I think it will) and the Repblicans dont pick the right candidate (which they wont) Then I will run as an Independent"

My vote goes for Trump, I knew he would do this.

I would only vote for myself as suprem chancelor. Currently the government that we have in place is to week to make a decision.

Below is my position on the major talking points.
Douglas Voorheis Manifesto Rev. 1
1.) Develop domestic forms of fuel, establish a reinvestment of the tax dollars gleaned from the revenue and reinvest it into renewable forms of energy. Stop sending trillions of dollars over seas to purchase oil from countries that support terrorism. Set a 10 year plan into action to wean the US from importing fuel from Communist or terrorist supporting nations.
2.) 20 percent tariffs on all China made goods immediately; rising by 5 percent each year for each year China refuses to revalue their currency. Make it illegal to import goods of any form of Socialist, communist, dictatorship nation. Any time you go to the store and buy shit stamped made in china, you are supporting our enemy.
3.) Defend our borders. Arizona is doing what the US government is not willing to do. Finish the fence between the US and Mexico. Kill any illegal’s invading our country; send their corpse home with a trebuchet.
4.) Make the prison system as close to self sustaining a possible. We have a safety net society that has created a segment of the population into dependants of the state. Most of the individuals within the prison system are not being trained or rehabilitated to be self sufficient individuals if and when they are released after serving their debt to society. There is clearly a need for farm laborers. The prisoners should be dependent on raising their own food, and maintaining a group of animals as needed to feed themselves. Train the incarcerated to replace the illegal aliens by making them dependant on their ability to raise their own food geographically to match the prison location. Texas should train prisoners to maintain ranches, Floridians to pick oranges and strawberries, Michigan to pick apples. Non compliance or lack of success would require rationing of food and prosperity in the prison, just as it is in free society.
I am gainfully employed and continue to grow a garden every year. Why should the prisoners get three meals a day and not do a damn thing to support themselves. Train them to support themselves in free society, stop making them into life time dependence.
Horticulture, Milking, Ranching, Fruit Gathering, Meet preparation, Packaging, Row Cropping, any where there is a presents of illegal aliens train the prisoners to replace them.
Offer early release for success and good behavior. Subsidies to the farms that hire the released prisoners. Use the farms that use the released prisoners for training grounds for the incarcerated. Repeat and return offenders should be punished. Three time felony offenders should suffer capital punishment.
5.) Decriminalize marijuana. Make any other drug offense that is violent, involves weapons, minors, or previous drug offenders a felony. Three convictions for three felonies gets you executed.
6.) Eliminate all public assistance for able-bodied recipients. Cut off all public assistance for failure to show up to a work program on a timely basis.
7.) Change unemployment to be a self funded program in which a percentage of your hourly wage is invested into a fund that has a guaranteed interest rate of 1-1/2% over the rate of inflation that will be paid back by a monthly draw over a two year period or at time of disability or retirement. When the monies in the account are used up, your no longer receive payment.
8.) All out war on any group or nation that attacks the US. Destroy Pakistan if necessary; get out of Afghanistan. Those people cannot be taught differently it is in their heritage, let them dominate each other.
9.) Make abortions illegal, except when the physical survival of the mother is threatened, to be determined by three medical doctors. Require Norplant for all women on welfare of childbearing age until they are no longer on public assistance.
10.) Encourage child bearing among taxpaying citizens. Create a marriage incentive, through lower taxes for married heterosexual couples. And a government subsidy for each child conceived and carried to birth. Increase the subsidies for each year the couple remains married.
11.) Eliminate all foreign ownership of any American media entity. Two, break up overly large conglomerates, like News Corporation. Three, Stop Governmental incentive and financial support of any news, radio, or broadcasting agency.
12.) Limit the size of state and federal government. Demand a balanced budget, except in time of war that has been declared by congress. Hang anyone who suggests otherwise for treason.
13.) Institute Capital punishment for any individual, convicted of a felony three times. Immediately. Make a public spectacle of the event so that people know there is punishment for improper behavior.

One reason I pick Paul is he supports a balanced budget ammendment.

NONE of the others do because they are ALL in someones pocket.

He is the only candidate from either the Republican or Democrat parties I could vote for and not feel like I was settling for a dirty crook stooge douche bag special interest cock sucker.

Everything except #9-10. You speak of freedoms left and right, and then throw in some commie nonsense with those two. Also, we don't need to subsidy people banging. This whole country would be under a wave of darkness in a year and a half. Plus, the last thing we need to do is pay the bloodsuckers to have a pile of little shitapple kids that will grow up to be shittrees, producing more shitapple kids. The whole thing will turn into a shiticane in under 5 years.

I didn't see anything in there about freedom, just different control than the control we have now.
